We used to love coming here. They had excellent XLB. Thin, taut wrappers that were delicate yet never fell apart. The “knob” at the top of the dumpling was somehow impossibly thin given you have 15 or whatever folds coming together.
Went there for lunch yesterday. XLB were terrible. Bottom was probably twice as thick as before. And the “knob” was a disgusting mass of dough. Which on 2 of the 6 had actually broken open.
I’m actually a bit confused, as the same two ladies who have always been behind the window were there pleating. But these were a real disappointment and I don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon.
Not to mention that a number of our cups and silverware were horribly underwashed with food debris clinging all over.
Come to think about it, I definitely won’t be going back anytime soon.
